Introduction

Welcome to the Dixie State University Cello Festival 2016!

The DSU Cello Festival will be held on September 16-17, 2016 in Dixie State University Eccles Fine Arts Center. Dedicated to promote the learning, enjoyment, and community-involvement in cello playing, the two-day Festival will offer a lot of wonderful opportunities for cellists of all ages and all levels. This year we are glad to have the Rosin Cello Duo as the Festival’s featured artists and clinicians (http://www.rosincelloduo.com).

Highlights of the festival include large cello ensemble sessions and final performance, chamber music opportunities, cello master classes, guest-artist recital and a lecture on how to practice efficiently, among others. There will also be two world-premieres of the Festival’s composer-in-residence Elena Chiu’s compositions for cello ensemble, and for cello-percussion duo respectively.

Register online now! The $25 registration includes access to every performance, workshop and event in the festival, a free Festival T-shirt, as well as a complimentary pizza lunch. Email Dr. Yu at ka-wai.yu@dixie.edu for any questions or further information.

Thank you. And we look forward to seeing you this Fall.

Cello Festival Director
